Modern Remodeled Bathroom


The only full bathroom in a Sunnyvale, CA condo was brought from the 70's with it's linoleum floors to the present with modern touches, a high end marble look with low budget porcelain tile, and some glam.


Inspiration

The homeowner wanted her remodeled bathroom to look modern and luxurious as well as feel more open than the current bathroom. She liked clean lines and soothing earth tones. The remodel would also have to fit within her small budget.


Existing Bathroom Conditions

The bathroom was original to the condo built in the 1970's. It had linoleum floors, standard cabinets, off-white walls, a fluorescent bar vanity light, and a solid surface counter and sink combo. A large, frameless mirror above the sink also had two sliding mirrored doors which the homeowner did not like.

The solid surface counter and sink combo was made to look like marble 
but didn't actually look like marble in a convincing way.

Decorating, Design, and Styling Services Provided

Only the walls from the original bathroom were kept intact. The room was completely remodeled otherwise. A new, wider bathtub was installed as was a new tile surround for the shower area. The porcelain tile was chosen to mimic Calcatta marble for the luxurious look but also to keep costs down. Glass tile accents were used int he shower surround as well. A new black shaker style vanity cabinet was installed to add more drawers than doors for easier access to bathroom storage. A vessel sink on top of Colonial White granite adds a signature modern touch. New recessed lighting in the shower alcove and the main area of the bathroom keeps the room looking bright and also adds to the modern feel of the room. Lastly, the walls were painted in a muted green color to keep the room grounded in soothing earth tones.

A niche was also installed on the wall of the shower to add extra storage.

The top of the shower is seen here. A band of glass tile goes around all three sides
near the top of the shower. The shower head is installed on this band for a clean look. 
A second vertical band runs down the left side of the wall.

Here is a closeup of the chrome Delta showerhead installed into the band of glass tile.

The new vanity has black shaker style cabinets and a vessel sink. 
The top center false front drawer folds down for extra storage.
The two large center doors have slide out drawers behind them for 
easy access to storage under the sink. The counter is Colonial White granite.

The new vanity has black shaker style cabinets and a vessel sink. 
The vessel sink makes a modern statement in this bathroom and stands out in a good way.
The underside of the vessel sink is a brown bronze color that goes well with the shower tiles.

A new glam LED vanity bar light was added 
because the homeowner wanted to add some sparkle to the room.

Why hire an interior designer? What's the cost?

Hint: the cost to hire and interior designer is generally more than this. Photo by NeONBRAND on Unsplash When do most people think about when hiring an interior designer? Aesthetic choices: paint colors for the wall; curtains, blinds, or shutters; a new sofa and rug; fabric patterns for pillows; and so on. But there's a lot more that a designer can add to a home. A professional designer can go beyond mere cosmetics to ensure that the whole room feels harmonious through and through, from the space plan (floor plan) to the finishing details to yes, fabric and wall color choices. The designer also deals with a whole host of stores, vendors, contractors, electricians, painters, other artists, and more depending upon the project. A good interior designer will take your needs, personality, tastes, and lifestyle into account, not just thrust their own style upon you and assume your needs for the project. A good interior designer will also take the time to build relationships and
